Title: Adey Payne Cooking Lesson in Boston
Post by: haldi on August 15, 2014, 04:57 PM
Anyone just starting BIR cooking should check out Adey's courses
Although I have been cooking BIR at home for many years Adey still managed to show me cooking Techniques and how he makes his base
There was a lot to learn
It was over 2 four hour lessons that we covered:-

Base gravy
Spice mix
ginger garlic puree
garlic puree
Tomato paste
Service Onions
Onion Bhajee
Spiced oil

Curries:-
patia
vindaloo
madras
rhogan
bhajee

He cooked a curry and then I had a go

Adey is making a living at this so told me not to reveal recipes
Sorry
But if you check out Adey and Julians recipes on youtube, it's pretty much all there
His gravy is particularly good

Doing the course has refined my technique
Adey stands over you as you cook
He tells you what heat is required, and when
He prompts you for the ingredients

He is also a very decent bloke, as are the other staff I met

If I'd had this course at the start of my curry cooking, it would have taken years off my search
The curries are not identical to ones I buy locally, but are definite BIR quality

Thanks for sharing that, Haldi. I have many questions but will start with were the two, four-hour courses on a one-to-one basis?

Hasn't he already done that with Mick going in, etc? But thanks for the insight. How local is he to you, if you don't mind me asking? -purely cos what you said about his not being what you buy locally? Big regional difference you reckon?

Cheers for the detail.

Which video best shows this Haldi

Are you allowed to elaborate on the refinement of technique used

Are you allowed to elaborate on required heat and when to use it

Are you saying they are a good curry but no better than the results we achieve anyway or are far better than the results we achieve?

Cheers  :)

I'd have liked to develop my argument, but since there are some impatient members, I will ask how much does it cost, Haldi, to get taught how not to make a curry like you get from your local TA?

Thanks for sharing that, Haldi. I have many questions but will start with were the two, four-hour courses on a one-to-one basis?
yes, it was one to one
I don't know why, but he asked me not to say the cost
But it wasn't cheap
Ask Adey direct, I'm sure he will quote you a price
This is pretty much the patia I was shown
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ujw82lBg3Cg (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ujw82lBg3Cg)

Adey is based in Boston and I'm in Nottingham (60 miles)
I can buy curries identical to Adey's, in Nottingham

The lessons have improved my technique
I have a better understanding of why I cook things, at what temperatures
For instance the garlic ginger or garlic needs to be cooked on a low heat
If you overcook at this stage the flavour is ruined

and then there is this roasting technique that Julian has been emphasising
that needs the heat wacked up full

I have also understood the importance of fenugreek leaves
They have a unique flavour, even cooked on their own

I have understood the difference between a curry cooked with garlic or a curry cooked with garlic/ginger paste

they give very different results

The scraping of the pan is a knack too, I need to practice that

I've never cooked so many curries in one go either
that, in itself, is a learning experience

He is a really nice bloke and extremely approachable
Perhaps I might take some of my "local" curry to him and ask what's different?
He will probably know

So far three people have eaten these "lesson" curries
and apart from the "it's a bit oily" comment, they have had high praise

One of my son's friends, was round a moment ago, and he smelt the reheated curry in the microwave
He was drooling and is calling back later to have some
He thought it smelt fantastic

The onion Bhajees were excellent
Quite a bit of the Adey stuff is in Julian's 2nd ebook

I have a question for you

recently you thought the Glasgow base was amazing, and you are from down south I believe?

do you still use the Glasgow base or a different base now?

if so why?

Garry
I think the Glasgow Base is very good
I will definitely use it again, although I might change my curry cooking methods
The Glasgow base runs very close to what I am after
I'm from the Midlands
Nottingham
To be honest I feel confused
I feel a bit like hanging up my curry pans for good

Don't misunderstand
Adey's course teaches a BIR quality that is bought every day
My whole family loved what I cooked
So what is different about the takeaways I go to?
Haven't a clue
Title: Re: Adey Payne Cooking Lesson in Boston
Post by: Madrasandy on August 16, 2014, 11:02 AM
Haldi, are you close or have you reached your goal for cooking Indian ? Or do you still feel you are missing something from your curries?
Title: Re: Adey Payne Cooking Lesson in Boston
Post by: ELW on August 16, 2014, 11:39 AM
Hi haldi, if you had someone else to cook your curries using your own ingredients you'd probably enjoy them better.
I just make a base up as I go along now, as long as its cooked properly it will make decent tasting curries.
Onions not boiled properly,too long on the final cook darkens & adds an unwanted flavour to the base, then the curries for me. You know this anyway
The only reason my curries don't taste like my local's is simply the recipe.  I had a curry in Amsterdam recently which tasted like what I would expect find anywhere here really. Curries we ordered at Masala in brick lane were a bit powdery & supermarket like & Tayyabs Punjabi is nothing like any of the Punjabi food common in Glasgow.
A crap flavour coming through from the base gravy in the curry gets confused with missing flavours or %'s imo

ELW

Practice and and patients unfortunately are a major ingredients.

Exactly. All that's needed are good recipes, like Blade's for tikka and H4C's for naan bread.

I've never seen the point of expensive training courses, in any subject.

It's sad if the result of Haldi spending a small fortune on a training course, has been to drive him to the verge of giving up. I'm not sure what to make of it.

I expected it all to be perfect
I'm hoping that it's something I can still get right
Adey and I are chatting and fingers crossed it work out
I was probably really naive
I expected a perfect match to curries, which obviously he's never tried
If I do get it, you will all know

Yes, they are different of course, but the principle is the same in my opinion, in that most people could make curries which taste just like at their favourite BIR, if given the recipes.

And me, so I deleted two of his three posts so far. This member is presumably a known character using a new user name, and purely out to stir up trouble. 

Back to the original topic...did Haldi taste the dishes from Adey's place before signing up for an expensive training course? Then it might be possible to complain that the lesson did not deliver food which tasted as good as what is served up in the restaurant.

Post by: chukitinabukit on September 04, 2014, 02:19 PM
Lets see if this post is any clearer for you George.
Madras Andy is a troll from this site who has been banned from CA's forum. He was also using the name Carolina reaper to cause trouble.
Little chilli is also a troll who caused trouble on the other site.
Little chilli claims that trolls exist to grab attention. If this is the case, I would question the "banned' motif that he is displaying. Surely this is designed to attract attention to his antics.
Madras Andy stalked the other forum using the name Baltiboy and posted a vitriolic attack on members of that site in a pathetic attempt to disrupt things.
I have only ever used the name Chukitinabukit, which Madrasandy chooses to change to Chukup.
Yet you say that I am out to cause trouble?
Adey Payne is entitled to post what he wishes unless he falls foul of the Admin, which he obviously has not.
Madras andy is entitled, it would seem to insult the man, but I am not allowed to comment on continuous whinging by a member?

Yea , right.

Title: Re: Adey Payne Cooking Lesson in Boston
Post by: George on September 04, 2014, 03:07 PM
Lets see if this post is any clearer for you George.

Yes, your post above is much better and, therefore I don't need to modify or delete it. I deleted one of your posts because it struck me as a thinly veiled obscenity.

You seem very well informed and I could hazard a guess as to who you might be.

You say Madras Andy and Little chilli are trolls but I don't see too much evidence of that here. I agree that using multiple user names on any one forum is bad practice but nobody has complained about that here.

Several of us are using the "banned" motif. I had mine custom made to show zero chillis because I never joined the other site as George but I know I'd be banned immediately, if I tried. I'd be the first to admit it's a wind up to reflect how many people (lots) seemed to be banned from the other site, whereas it's VERY rare that anyone needs to be banned from here.

I agree that referring to your use name, Chukitinabukit, as Chukup, is provocative but isn't your user name a bit long? Can't you cut it down to something a bit shorter?

I agree that Adey Payne is entitled to post what he wishes and he's as valued as any member here.
Title: Re: Adey Payne Cooking Lesson in Boston
Post by: littlechilie on September 04, 2014, 03:49 PM
Chuckit a new thread might be better place? maybe George would consider moving it over, this is a large can of worms you open!

The banned user names are displayed as a joke, due to the fact that any questioning or disagreement of a certain persons posts gets you an instant Ban!!

This unfortunately means you never have a chance to reply to the inconsiderate or unfounded comments then posted by the sarcastic dictator.

Thus is why I rejoined to have my 10pence worth only to be dismissed by the iron fist! Alongside dealing with the dictator, other members have had to put up with you consistently winding them up while hiding under his wing!

This is why you are receiving stick from members here, but you never know leopards may change there spots, if you can change your attitude towards me, then I openly welcome you and you input.

I thought Chuckup was quite an amusing twist. And that's a big difference between here and the dark side. Most on here are happy to have a chuckle and poke fun at each other in a friendly way, without offence being taken.

Perhaps Chucky misinterpreted this jovial tomfoolery as nasty, I doubt it was meant this way. Andy can be a cheeky, mischievous little rascal, but have never seen him as a particularly disruptive influence.

Madamandy,
you constantly snjpe away at Adey to the point where it appears you have a fixation about him., then ask why I appear to attack you?
I did not "attack" you. My original comment was that you are still whining about Adey and his instruction course. This is a fact. It is not fiction.
You put your hand on your heart and swear you are not Baltiboy? Not impressed. You and I both know you are.

The little chillie,
you post slanderous bull about me, then say if I am prepared to change my attitude towards you, that you are up for a "group hug"?
Surely that's what happens at therapy meetings. I neither need therapy, nor a "group hug".

I am known on CA's forum as Chuk or Chukit.
Should anyone wish to twist that into something else, they have no room for complaint should I choose to reciprocate in kind.

Madamandy isn't bad and I think should be used in future :P

I believe there are a few people who are suspicious about Adey's motives for joining this site and promoting his 'lessons'. Nothing against the guy, personally and all that. Add to that the fact that one of our members had one of those lessons and was less than overwhelmed and maybe you can understand why some of us may be a little sceptical.

As for fixations? I think it may be you who has the fixations about Adey.....I wonder what your motives are?

Well, I've been on both, Banned twice from the other (the only thing in my life I've ever been banned from) and its much better here.

' Your curry was 100% again tonight Cory, but then again so it should be it's one of yours' 'Why thank you  8), you can stay, don't forget to rate it'

Think I might join for a 3rd time. Its very therapeutic over there, a bit like listening to paint dry or perhaps rain falling or even listening to white noise through a pair of headphones with a sack over your head, arms outstretched, leaning with your hands against a wall :)

mmmmm a lot of contradiction in the same posts there.
Gaviscon has never been banned from anything/where before, states there is nothing for him on CA's forum, yet wants to rejoin?
You should write a book of your own Gaviscon "confessions of a troll".
By the the way, those " ideas coming from the voices in your head" don't seem to be that good.

Garp, you think that one post of mine constitutes a fixation?

As for the "grow some b#lls comment.
If those of you who are members of this forum wish to be abusive to me or others, have the gonads to do it under your own name girls. No need to sneak into another place. I'll check in here from time to time to see how you are doing. ;)

Back on topic, not everybody will get the same result from a course, some will be extatic with the result, some will be happy, some will be disappointed and some, like Haldi, will come away confused.
Maybe Haldi is struggling with the change over in methods from those that he has been using for years, to those that he has recently been taught.

Adeys course covers everything, and he is teaching it right
My problem is that I already knew most of these methods and my recipes needed fine tuning

If I tried a madras from three places, I would get three different results

I should have brought a sample of exactly what I wanted to achieve, to the course
I naively thought this would just happen

If you have a different base, a different spice mix, a different cooking order, different main ingredient you can't get anything but a different result
It all adds up

Adey is a decent bloke and he is helping many people achieve exactly what they are after

That's true, its the only thing or place I've ever been banned from in my whole life. I don't think I said there's nothing for me on there, that must be the voices in your head, I did say I might rejoin as I think its therapeutic and I do enjoy reading the posts from the numptys i.e. you. Some words I think you should look up in the dictionary, hypocrite - before you tell me that I'm a troll (internet) for which I'll actually accept as a compliment, imbecile - in relation to yourself and while your there, ecstatic because you mis-spelt it. Obviously someones touched a nerve somewhere causing you to post on here. If it makes you happier and you need a point of focus for your apparent anger, just insult or accuse me of anything that springs up in your mind and I'll happily agree for you, fact or fiction.

You've got to admit that its better here though, as you wouldn't be able to have such a friendly debate over in the school house without getting a warning then banned.

TROLL- is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments, hoping to start arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.

Shame you didnt have the benefit of hindsight Haldi, it would have been great to learn how to replicate your favourite restaurant curry.  The madras's I have eaten from restaurants, not take-aways,  around here are all pretty similar , with only slight differences between them, noticable but slight.

Yes it does all add up, but the challenge is fun and enjoyable  :)

Yep, "Gav is gone", the voices in your head telling you that you need therapy are probably correct.
It is your claim to be a troll that prompted my suggestion that you write your own  book entitled "Confessions of a troll",
and now you are claiming the title of Troll as a compliment.
You just don't have a pair big enough to confess to being Baltiboy, do you.
You sit  there and allow Madamandy to take the blame.
To your Troll, I am the Billy goat gruff.
It must be the rejection that you feel that is causing you to  attempt to troll and re-enter the other place.  :'(

Madamandy,
are you "still" trying to tell Haldi how he feels after his course? Tut tut.

You want to hug a man? Ask Madamandy to oblige, that's if he is not posing as "Caroliner" today.

Should you wish to send another pm in the same vein, I will keep that as well. Anything to aid your therapeutic treatment.
By the way, what else did your consultant, voices in your head, recommend, maybe I could assist you there as well?

You are on the wrong site to be soliciting hugs from men Little whatsit, or are you?
You shout about how this forum gives freedom of speech, yet do not make a murmur when somebody's post is removed? Okay.

I'm interested in these cooking course you girls are offering at 1/2 the price of Adey's.
I am fascinated that you claim to consistently fail to come up to scratch on the quality. That is self evident.

Interesting, Phil. Can you explain how, or why, an independent Scotland would cease to be part of Britain, therefore cease to be British?

"The Kingdom of Great Britain resulted from the union of the kingdoms of England (comprising modern-day England and Wales) and Scotland in 1707. Subsequently, in 1801, the Kingdom of Great Britain united with the neighbouring Kingdom of Ireland forming the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. When five-sixths of Ireland seceded from the United Kingdom in 1922, the state was renamed the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland."

Since you (generic, = "some Scots") wish to secede from this union, if you (also generic) are successful in this aim it is clear that you will, by definition, no longer be a member of the Kingdom of Great Britain.  At which point you may cease exporting those ridiculously overpriced, overpackaged and overrated biscuits called "shortbread" and eat them all yourselves, to augment your otherwise impoverished diet of deep-fried battered Mars bars washed down by an uncountable number of wee hawff and hawffs.

I thought this forum was called "lets talk curry".  Strange folk here.... ::)

No, this thread was started in a SECTION of the forum called "let's talk curry".

The forum is called "curry-recipes" so if the meandering nature of the discussion within this thread does not interest you, why not check out any one of thousands of excellent recipe threads?

Strange folks? We still achieve more than on forums where anything remotely off-topic is deleted.

I agree that it might sometimes be better to split a thread but it's simply not possible.

Is your part of the planet not collectively known as "The Brittish Isles"?

In the event of the "Yes" vote winning, what about the name, the "Fractured United Kingdom"?

I'm going to spend the day cooking 2 versions of Balti Chicken Madras.  One will be a straight preparation following a stand alone "Book Recipe".  The second one will contain, as much as humanly possible, the exact same ingredients but prepared in the BIR method.  Just to see what difference, if any, the method actually makes to the finished dish.  Also as much as possible I'll try to follow AP's recipes and method depending on how much I can glean in the time I have to do this experiment.

Has anybody else done this?

It's the nature of the beast Mick. The beast being...human nature.

If you prefer a more focused approach I believe CA's forum is looking for new members.

Unfortunately, I'd need to amend the thread title of all 150 (approx) posts so it's not really practicable.

I could lock the thread but it strikes me as restricting discussion if people want to talk about anything they like.

Or I could delete every single post which isn't relevant to the "Adey Payne Cooking Lesson in Boston". I'm sure that wouldn't go down very well, either.

This thread certainly isn't one of the best adverts for the forum, so I can understand RingStinger's comments to an extent.

I'm going to spend the day cooking 2 versions of Balti Chicken Madras. ..Just to see what difference, if any, the method actually makes to the finished dish.

I've used different methods with the same ingredients and found it can make a significant difference.

One example is that I tried cooking all the ingredients for a base sauce separately, for 40 minutes, as per my normal approach, when the ingredients are fried/simmered together. Then I combined everything at the end and found the sauce didn't taste as good as normal! I hoped that, if the end result had tasted the same, I could try altering the quantity of the ingredients to taste, to make it even better.

Now that. Mr Onions, is distinctly Out of Order.  Haldi is one of our most senior and respected members, and if he wishes all irrelevant contributions to be deleted from a thread that he himself has started, then I believe he has every right to request that, and I would support him in his request.  Most of us are guilty of going off-topic from time to time, and I more than most, but we should nonetheless respect the wishes of those more dedicated and serious members who wish to keep a particular thread on-topic.
